How to Keep People Interested In Your Website
Sometimes it can take prospects more than one visit to your website before they decide to become a client. But how can you get them engaged in your website (that is, how can you get them to come back?)
Here are six strategies to implement on your website to keep people interested — and coming back!
#1 Blog. Blog comments are a way for people to be interactive on your website. Of course, you'll have to offer regular and valuable content and youíll want to inspire conversation. This can be done by asking a question, stirring the pot with a little controversy, or by offering valuable content people feel compelled to thank you for and comment on.
#2 Let them promote you! Digg, Twitter and other sites let readers, fans, and prospects promote your posts and content. Use "social share" buttons on your website that make it easy for visitors to do this.
#3 Sponsor contests or sweepstakes. There is nothing more fun than winning something and people love to enter contests. Whether it's a sweepstakes where the item is won via a drawing or a contest where skills are required, winning is fun and a great way to get people involved.
#4 Surveys/polls. Ask your visitors for their opinion. People love to share their opinion and voice their concerns, interests, and challenges. Get them involved by posting surveys and/or polls. (You can also use the information that you learn from the surveys to design additional services and information products to serve jobseekers!)
#5 Ask for feedback. Want to know what your prospect's most pressing concerns are? What they need, want, hope for and desire? Ask them. It's a great way to research your target audience and a great way to stimulate a little website interactivity.
#6 Question of the day/week/month. If you blog, posting a regular question of the day, week or month is a valuable way to connect with your audience. Your audience is able to communicate what they need, you gain valuable insight, and you boost interactivity. It's a win-win-win! (This is also something you can do on your Facebook page.)
Interactivity is a fantastic way to build trust with prospective clients so they become customers. Loyal customers and prospects boost awareness, word of mouth communication, and your bottom line. Implement a few of these interactivity-boosting strategies today!
